  • Summary: Eno sings! And while those words are sure to excite fans of the bald one's 70s classics such as 'Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy),' his first vocal album in 15 years is much closer in sound and mood to more recent efforts as well as the final handful of tracks on 'Eno Box II: Vocals' (the latter's "Under" even appears again on this disc).

    Another Day... slithers easily into the company of his greatest releases, with jaw-dropping melodies and flawless, Passengers-era production, creating a soundscape as ethereal as Another Green World. [#16, p.90]
  2. In a pop world where everything feels amped up, who could have imagined that this once-chilly music could sound so comforting. [17 June 2005, p.79]
  3. The joy of hearing Eno's hushed, statesmanlike singing voice again is one thing, but the hymnal This and funky Under match anything in his canon.
  4. Another Day is nowhere near as invested with ideas as Eno's name-making work, but its easy pleasures still rub and float away.
  5. A fascinating look at planet Eno. [10 Jul 2005]
  6. 60
    Exceedingly pleasant, if hardly groundbreaking. [Aug 2005, p.104]
  7. Another Day On Earth is more blank than frank, a journey through a hollow land, more discreet than it needs to be. Imagine a recording in which every human error has been scrubbed, like coffee grounds off a formica counter.

    A beautifully produced album. I just wish it was longer. I love the way "And Then So Clear" builds. "This", "Under", and "Caught Between" are also among my favourites, though that list tends to change with each listen. Please sir, can I have more? Expand
